Of course when they started streaming out those who got in said it was "a killa show". Now listening to it I'd concur. The Dead in New York was the pinnacle of my touring days. New York audiences are very demanding and the Dead delivered, whereas one would think the better shows were in the bay area. Not to say the Dead didn't turn in many a great show there, but I digress.Great shows were played in this place, and the two nights featured in '85 are no exception. On paper Half Step>I know you rider is unusual, but the Dead were themselves that if nothing else. And it's not a smooth transition, but God bless the Dead for taking those kinds of chances. The crowd enthusiasticly welcomes Rider, which they had the notion to understand that this was unique, and the end of this song shows how much the crowd knew they'd been granted a treat. The next night I got in, and made up for having to watch a show from the outside!
